Welcome Little One

Welcome friends! For today's card I followed the CAS-ual Fridays Color Block Challenge. The minute I read about it, the challenge reminded me of a sweet, little baby's blanket. To make my card, I cut out my color blocks and stamped them with a background stamp using Versamark. Then I matted them on white and put them on a khaki card to make the colors really stand out. Don't you just LOVE this sweet onesie? I stamped it, cut it out and popped it up from the "quilt." A welcoming sentiment with some bling and I was done.

For some reason today, I kept stopping myself and asking, "Will it work the way I want?" Finally I just told myself to go for it and stop worrying. It's just paper and ink after all! Always more where that came from:)

Happy Saturday!

It worked for me! I think that a quilt is a brilliant idea for color blocking! Thank you for playing at CAS-ual Fridays!

Great idea! I love that this card works for boys or girls, so you can actually pre-prepare your card. :-) That onesie is now on my very, very long wishlist!
